No problem, I did not want to nag so did not persist!

I have a few web hosts of my own where I could do that. Is there any 'preferred' 
  host for such things?

It was not really my intent to take over their maintenance - but I wouldn't mind 
either as I do use them both.

I have a few other neglected SBo packages that I have not updated due to not 
having a 13.37 machine available until recently - so I'll schedule an SBo day in 
the near future.

Leave yours there for now and I'll note your permission when I submit them, 
hopefully in the not distant future!
